Decided to build a second Hornet HD from TorqueFPV as a dedicated yard racer. With the various ways you can either set a quad up for freestyle or racing in BF 4.2 I figured it would just be easier to have 2 lol.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
